RATES ARE 1
NOT IIKIII
Western Rates Should Be
AdvancedSays Thayer
of Pennsylvania
Now York Sept 12lohn A Thay
er viceprculdent of the Pennsylvania
railroad today told tho Interstate
Commerce commission which is in
quiring Into the question of tho tar
iffs by the eastern roads that the
rates between tho east and weal have
been for years too low and that the
tariffs ohould have been raised in
1908
1908The adjustment was delayed until
tho depression hud passed the wit
ness said
Mr Thayer nid that passenger
rates were nOl compensatory for tin
nrvlco rendered but that the pub
lic through its legislatures would
not stand for advance in through
passenger rates lie said that the
rates on through traffic had been too
low in comparison with local roles
Considering tho matter ot freight
tariffs Mr Thayer said
CIA car of first cKi38 freight from
New York or Boston 1100 miles to
Chicago would at high speed brlni
Just 75 A car of stopl from PIUs
burg to New York less than half the
distance IQaded and unloaded for uee
brings twice tho revenue
On everything from Boston to Chi
cago we only get 55 conlK a hundred
poundd and have to pny the New Hav
en railroad 25 por cent of it for
bringing it to Jersey City
MI Thayer saId In conclusion
The estimated increase of this d
unce on lines cast of Plttsburg is
3000000 which is a large sum It
must be remembered as far as the
Penns > Ivauia Railroad company Is
concerned that we deal with very
large and huge figures and after all
that the amount only represented 2
IHO per cent of our gross earnings
from freight traffic anil 1 610 per
cent of our total groBS earnings from
all sources so that It is not a larg
standard advance in our opinion but
a more adjustment of rates to bring
up a portion of the revenue we niu4
have in order to meet demands now
made on us
